Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor is expanding his artistic horizons. In addition to being a musician and author, he's adding acting to his repertoire. He's set to appear in the feature film 'Fear Clinic.'

It began as a horror series for FearNet, with Robert Englund ('A Nightmare on Elm Street') playing a 'fear doctor' who treats patients with crippling phobias. The film version will also star Englund as Dr. Andover.

Here's a sneak peek at the plot: "The film opens with a tragedy that launches five people into the public eye and enlists Dr. Andover to lend his expertise to help them overcome trauma-induced phobias. A year later, terrifying ‘aftershocks’ rattle the survivors, leading to them finding their way back to the fear clinic seeking answers. As they line up for another turn in the chamber, Dr. Andover believes that something more sinister may be at work."

Taylor says, "Really looking forward to being a part of the Fear Clinic movie with Almost Human and co! And the great Robert Englund! Pinch me!"

Taylor will play Bauer, an employee of the clinic who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. Also appearing in 'Fear Clinic' are Thomas Dekker ('Heroes,' 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles'), Kevin Gage ('Heat,' 'Blow'), Fiona Dourif ('True Blood') and Felisha Terrell ('Days of our Lives').

'Fear Clinic' is scheduled for a Halloween 2014 release. To follow the progress of the movie, you can check out its Facebook page.
